For those who care... I just read a twitter post from Chris Horner saying he had a flat in his V70R on the way back from Aspen, CO.<p>Good to know he has good taste. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Cycling + V70R (SeventyR)

I remember seeing a VR doing chase car duties on The Tour of France a few years ago <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Cycling + V70R (petew)

I get a very satisfied "look back" when I park the car with my mountain bike on the roof. It seems like the VR is made to haul stuff VERY rapidly. <p>The roof rack and attached gear make it appear to look lower to the ground and more squat along the "shoulder lines" of the vehicle, IMO.

Yes...Horner, Levi and Lance are altitude traing as final prep for Le Tour. Astana is stacked with talent. Much will be revealed in the first TT. Contadir seems much impoved in his TT ability this year.
